Harris, John (1813–1855)

Another instance of the fatal effects of intemperance has just occurred at Port Adelaide. A person named John Harris, who kept a shop on the North-parade, expired suddenly on Monday night, in consequence of his excesses. Mr. Stevenson, on Tuesday, made an enquiry into the facts, and being satisfied from the testimony of various persons acquainted with them, and having received a certificate from the medical man who attended Mr. Harris that he died of delirium tremens, and there being no marks of violence upon the body, the usual order for Interment was issued.
